green Tea

From the foothills of Nepal's towering peaks, the fresh, clean flavor of the Himalayan Green is in perfect harmony with the calmness and spirituality for which the region is known. Unusually tippy for a green tea, the tender young leaves produce a cup lighter in color and flavor than a Darjeeling, but with a richness not always found in a green tea. Savor the soft, sweet aroma, pristine floral notes and gentle sweetness this tea has to offer.

Health Benefits: In traditional Chinese and Indian medicine, practitioners have used green tea as a stimulant, diuretic, digestion aid and astringent. Studies show that green tea has the ability to regulate blood glucose, enhance mental performance, reduce inflammation, improve bone mineral density and lower risk of heart disease. It is a rich source of the polyphenol EGCG, shown to provide protection against cancer, particularly colon, lung and skin cancers.
